The most important reason why I selected the program was for its affordability. As a graduate, I am paying for the program through my own personal funds without the help of any university financial aid or scholarships. Affordability and value of the program were essential in my decision, and KCP has exceeded my expectations.

I learned not only about Japanese culture but also about Chinese, Korean, Taiwanese and Americans. It was interesting to communicate with different cultures and to learn something new.

The program is tough, but incredibly rewarding. There are regular tests but it has really helped solidify everything I have learned so far.

Malisa from Winter 2017

Games were helpful because it made the class feel more relaxed, and I wouldn’t feel so nervous when trying to answer questions.
